Victoria Gyles is a senior associate in the Intellectual Property group and advises on a wide range of intellectual property rights and other related legal and commercial matters across a range of industry sectors.
“I have extensive experience on advising across a range of contentious and non-contentious matters with a particular focus on patents and trademarks.
I’ve worked on some significant and high value patent and trade mark claims and have represented clients before the High Court, Patents County Court, now the Intellectual Property Enterprise Court (IPEC)), as well as in disputes in the EPO and have represented clients before the trade mark registry at the EUIPO.
IP for many businesses is one of its most important assets and I’ve experience in some of the most complex international commercial transactions in which IP has played a key part in its success. This work has included licensing arrangements, distribution and franchising agreements, assignments, joint venture agreements, sponsorship agreements and advising on matters of contract interpretation. I’ve also advised on brand protection and on validity and infringement risks.’’
Victoria gained a Masters’ degree in Natural Sciences and in Chemistry in 2005, and obtained The Oxford University Postgraduate Diploma in Intellectual Property Law and Practice in 2011.
